Upper Hunter Library Network members will have free access to Borrowbox, an eBook and eAudio Book library

EXCITING changes are coming to your local library in the next few days.

From Monday, May 27, all members of the Upper Hunter Library Network will have free access to Borrowbox, an eBook and eAudio Book library, which has been specifically curated with our local communities in mind.

Traditionally, access to services has been restricted to library opening hours.

But, this is all changing as products like Borrowbox make library books more accessible to all, including housebound members and shift workers who are not able to make it to the library during opening hours.

Borrowbox includes eBooks and eAudio books for children, teens and adults and covers a range of interest areas like your favourite Australia authors, romance, mystery and biography.

It is also great for people with vision impairment or low vision as eAudio titles can be downloaded and played using audio readers.

The app is easy to use and registration is automatic for all library members.

Not a member?

Library membership is free and can be obtained either by visiting one of the seven branches or by following the 'Join the Library' link on the website.

Library and community members are invited to visit their local facility at Aberdeen, Cassilis, Denman, Merriwa, Murrurundi, Muswellbrook or Scone or visit the library website at www.uhrl.nsw.gov.au

For more information, phone Lauren Allan at Muswellbrook Library on 6543 1913.
